What is the going rate for a used 1.9 diesel engine? Mine needs to be replaced.
IDK. Why do you not think yours could be repaired for cheaper? With a used engine you could get one that needs a fair amount of catch up maintenance ($) to make it reliable.
Really depends where you are. varies wildly from place to place.
Lookup the engine on car-part.com. This will list every engine in inventory across hundreds of junkyards, so you can quickly see the differences in pricing, condition, mileage, etc. I just today received my 2006 BRM engine which I picked up for $1300 with another $200 for shipping (Philadelphia to Baltimore). UPS freight delivered to my door and the driver was nice enough to assist moving the pallet into my garage. Only issue I have is that it was an engine from an automatic and not a manual (my fault) so not sure what I will need to swap out from the old engine, if anything, to make it work.
